    With sadness we pray for the entire Reeves family in the loss of our friend whom we fondly called Bobby. Dist. Eld. Reeves grew up with the Bells in Inkster at Dist. Eld. O.G. Hayes at 4010 Moore st. Bethlehem Temple. Dist. Eld. Reeves loved the Lord and his family. A teacher and preacher and TRUE man of GOD was his life. It was too soon for the family but in GOD'S timing. Remember GOD never makes a mistake and is too wise to not care. Put your trust in HIM and HE will see you through. he has fought a good fight, he has finished his course, he has kept the faith: Dist. Eld. Reeves has gone from labor to rest. We will keep the family in our prayers. Prayerfully, The BELLS of Romulus ALL of US

    We deeply feel for what you and the family are going through. At times, there isn't much that can soothe the pain this grief brings, but you may find some comfort in the words of Psalms 9:9 which reads: "Jehovah will become a secure refuge for the oppressed, A secure refuge in times of distress." Yes, our Loving God can help if we allow him to (1John 5:14). He also has made the SURE promise of a resurrection right here on earth, when it is restored to a Paradise (Acts 24:15; Psalms 37:9-11,29). No, not just a dream, but for a certainty he will do it, for Isaiah 55:11 shows us that everything he says, he accomplishes without fail. You can find out more online at JW.ORG.
